. and after finishing first and second in the cpac shuffle, senators rand paul and marco rubio continued to jockey for the spotlight. paul threw his support mostly behind comprehensive immigration reform as he and rubio each did their best not to get ahead of each other on what the path to legalization might look like. [ speaking in foreign language ] i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrant. >> we aren't going to deport 12 million people like rand paul said today or give blanket amnesty or a special pathway to citizenship. what i've never been for is a special pathway to citizenship. >> i'm simply saying you can get a work visa and get in the normal line. >> the idle republican party announced rand paul will headline their annual fundraiser next month. rick santorum and wisconsin governor scott walker will also be in the hawkeye state in coming weeks. we also learned marco rubio's pac spent a hundred thousand dollars on campaign consultants just last month. new jersey governor chris christie says ohio senator ro
't. the republican party lost because it's not conservative. it didn't get the base out. >> meanwhile the rand paul of the party reacted angrily. eliminate caucuses and limit debates that they believe are aimed at hurting canned days outside the establish am. one said elimination of caucuses would mean nuclear war with the grass roots social conservatives and the ron paul movement. nbc editor mark murray is here with the morning's first read. good morning to you. stern words there obviously from the adviser to rand paul and the paul campaign. what's going on within the gop? they had this autopsy and the establish movement by the rnc trying to modernize the party and saying we will move on immigration and not be the party of old white men. in order to do that, they could have changes that could change the way we look at the primary. they want to get rid of caucuses and take that power away from the grass roots. >> two big areas of push back. 1 that you hit upon and reducing the debates and influence that caucuses have. it ends up hurting folks like rand paul and the people who might be eying a 2016
? >> i think the architects of the war. addiction cheney, paul wolf wits, none of those gentlemen served in their generations in vietnam. but they were really quick to send my generation into a religious civil war that had nothing to do with 9/11 and had no weapons of mass destruction. >> i want to bring you into this. >> their families, when they hear about today's news, but yet this other side where it is almost untalked about in the beltway. why have most forgotten? >> i think there's a tendency for people to avoid the subject. it then raises the question, if it was a police take to go into iraq and i believe that it was, in retrospect given the absence of weapons of mass destruction, then it begets the question, did those 4,500 or so die in vain? that's a hard question. people don't want to answer that. i'm surprised by the polling data today, that says that roughly 38% of americans still think it was the wise move to go in when you break that down by rs and ds, roughly 60% of republicans who still believe that it was necessary to go into iraq. for what reason? i don't know. given th
a piece you have up about paul ryan. you say it's paul ryan's disappearing act. his stock could not have shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. ther
paul and marco rubio teaming up. rand paul to the intellect you'll voice of the party and marco rubio to the more emotional voice. chris christie can do something neither of them can do. this sort of no nonsense cut right to it. delivers a great punch line. tells it like it is. he has more flexibility to do that as governor. i think when you're in congress, you have to be a little more careful with your words but no one can do what chris christie does. we need him too. >> i think what you see is his strength as a candid candidate for a candid camera world. mitt romney had a lot of problems just being videoed, being himself. it was worse than the other problems he had which was not being himself. neither worked out very well. and chris christie does this thing, when he talks off the cuff. to kids or teachers or yelling at reporters, people love it. if you look on youtube at the viral videos, and he has created several. eight of the top ten are him being spontaneous. you can see, he says it is reprehensible. this is the crap i have to hear. >> how my uncle talk. >> what the hell are we
guys with me. the most important, ask paul cunningham, the sheriff cunningham to come up and give an update on the deputy injured in the shooting yesterday. thank you, sheriff walker. and like the sheriff said my name is paul cunningham, i am the sheriff in montague county. our officer injured yesterday in the traffic stop is doing great. i talked to his mom and dad this morning, he was sitting up in bed and talking, so that's a great thing. >> i know most of the media outlets have shown a picture of the suspect from yesterday and from our standpoint here we will release his name and say that evan spencer ebel, e-b-e-l, i believe most of you have that is our confirmed suspect and there was talk yesterday he was on life support, he's been pronounced deceased and that is our suspect. we will release through email shortly a photo if you don't have that, you can request it from our office, i believe most of you probably already have that. within the last 24 hours after identifying the-- identifying the suspect positively was the county medical examiner's office and did that through fi
paul ryan's budget plan on a 59-40 vote. ryan says it would have put his countrien othe right path. >> we owe the country a balanced budget. it's a reasonable plan. grows the economy. balancing the budget is not just a sta stats tis particular call exercise. creates nor jobs. helps people keep more of their hard earned money when the other side is offering even more spending increases and tax increases. more borrowing. we are worlds apart. >> democratic proposals do not balance the budget. the fbi is investigating how on earth a man was able to pose as a pilot and gain access airways flight in philadelphia. police say the man had on an air france uniform and also an i.d. then he ended up in the jump seat right behind the airlines captain. he was caught when he failed to show his real credentials. the airline says that no passengers were ever in danger. >> that was a bizarre story. >> um-huh. >> the lie breafer congress has added 25 new songs, including this 1960's hit. ♪ come on, baby, ♪ let's do the twist. ♪ come on, baby ♪ let's do the twist. >> they said it became the ex
paul's filibuster to argue the conservatives are somehow winning now. and he took a swipe at senator john mccain. >> we did have a certain eminence grize of the republican party describe rand paul and me as wacko birds. >> we wondered whether senator rand paul could corral straw poll supporter. he clearly did. the libertarian senator scored with conservatives looking toward the 2016 race. winning the straw poll with 25% of the vote. very close second there. marco rubio at 23%. no other candidate, though, in double digits. for cycle after cycle, the republican party has been rewarding the next guy in line with their presidential nomination. but for the first time in a generation, the party has no front-runner. could mean a crowded field. this weekend the potential candidates were already jockeying for position. wisconsin governor scott walker, among the weekend's more popular speakers, admitted he has white house ambitions to politico saying, quote, would i ever be interested? possibly. i guess the only thing i'd say is i'm not ruling it out. for me it's really a measure of what i've
to speed on american. senator rand paul. >> i think the legislature is about ten years behind the public. i've introduced amendments to quit sending money t and build bridges here in the united states rather than in egypt. 90% of the people agree with me 80% of my senate disagree with me. bill: do you agree with rand paul on that? >> it's a little more complicated than that. he is correct that the senate is not as responsive to the will of the american people as it should be. for example it continues to spend too much, another point that senator paul has made. on the other hand people in political office need to be leaders as well and they need to explain why, for example, we send military assistance to egypt. we want the egyptian military to you supportive of u.s. policy. when they buy american equipment, when they receive our help they tend to be more supportive of our position. the egypt leader is trying to play both side. if the united states withdrew awful its assistance i'm not sure he wouldn't flip over to the wrong side. it's more complicated than saying we shouldn't send aid to cou
budget committee chairman, paul ryan. it passed in a mostly party line vote, 221-207 and it followed heated debate. >> this resolution makes deep and indiscriminate and harmful sequestration cuts that threaten our economic recovery. >> we can't continue to spend money we don't have. >> this is an uncompromising ideological approach to our budget. >> we want to balance the budget. they don't. >> chairman of the democratic campaign committee and we should note declined an invitation to trav with the president to israel for these votes. congressman, great to see you. >> good to be with you. >> hold on right now. hold on for a second. we want to show you, show our viewers at home these live pictures of president obama again, president obama meeting with president peres. he is going to be receiving the medal of distinction there. while we are looking at these pictures, congressman, let's talk for a few moments until they start the speeches. let's talk about the trip the president has been on. i'm sure you saw at least a portion of the speech this morning. you saw the speech yesterday. is
. >> that was the "washington post's" assessment of it. >> the same criticism has been labeled to the paul ryan budget, which uses as part of its calculation, defunding broadly, president obama's health care law. which i think, i think we probably can agree, is not likely to happen. if both sides are offering budget proposals that are nonviable. how do we get to a budget proposal that is viable, do you expect that to happen? >> well, i think it's important for our country that we do. and the thing that's, that i think is so important about paul ryan's budget is that it actually becomes a balanced situation. where you have a balanced budget. the democrat proposal -- never balances, not this year, not in ten years. never. and american families realize they have to live within their means, they can't spend money they don't have. they understand the concept of a balanced budget and i was back in wyoming last weekend, the people at home still believe that over half of all the money they send to washington is wasted. so the concerns are that these budgets that we see specifically the democrats' budget, it's more,
this, we david. we heard, among other things, rand paul talking about a completely new position for him on immigration. what's going on? >> well, the immigration story is just good news for those of us who want a comprehensive solution. whether it's the-- what's happening on immigration is we failed probably seven, eight years ago, but now it's just moving. and so there's a groom of eight senators in the senate who are working together to come up with a bill, and they've overcome what used to be the main hurdle which is how-- what are we going to do with the 11 or 12 million who are here. they have more or less got that. now they are arguing how we get the long-term flow of. so suddenly you're seeing progress, and that's in the senate. in the house, you're seeing some private meetings where they are making progress there, too, which is actually a harder job under the aegis of leadership of both parties. i think it's quite likely what we couldn't do a couple of years ago we're going to do this time which is have a exrepsive immigration reform bill and fix the system. >> woodruff: and a b

budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for obamacare. 1.6 and 1.5 is a 3 trillion-dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passes and a never balances because they turn round and spend another -- hundreds of millions of dollars more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. they do more spending with more taxes but with the brian budget does is very interesting for the republican future. it reforms entitlement, protect
these issues into the normal structural debate inside a place like the senate. if you look at rand paul's filibuster of a week ago, let's remember two things. he was talking about drones, but ask yourself why. what was he filibustering? -- he wast filibustering a nomination. it seems over and over again the only way people can raise these issues inside the senate is to question a nomination, whether it is senator hagel for the a, the confirmation hearing to bring them up, or if you are lucky, to t an amendment on the floor to debate these issues that are really central to our foreign policy, which is what i attempted to do along with senator corker of tennessee with respt to the libya situation. we need to have a full discussion on issues such as drones, and another piece of the drones issue here in the united states -- and this is where i have been aligned in the past with what senator paul, senator lee, and people on the i wouldic side, too -- call libertarians, people who are concerned about individual rights. when you look at the issue of apprehending, taining , iricans on american
for undocumented immigrants. congressman paul ryan spelled out his position in "the situation room" with wolf blitzer. >> well, i think we can get comprehensive immigration reform. i support reform. i supported the bush reforms in 2005 and 2006. i think we can find a way of making sure that people here with an undocumented status have an ability to adjust that status. we're not going to be able to deport 12 million people. and there's a way to do this without rewarding them for breaking the line or breaking the law, without rewarding them for cutting in line so they don't have a special and unique pathway so those who came here legally who paid the fines, who waited patiently are not penalized by letting people cut in front of them. i think there's a way to do this. and i would call it earned legalization status. >> let's bring in chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, could it be that congress might actually get a little something done here? how close are lawmakers to coming up with an immigration reform plan that everyone likes or can agree to? >> i sense your skepticism because it'
